The global metal biocides market is projected to reach USD 3.49 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2016 to 2021. The market is primarily driven by the rapid growth of the key end-use industries, such as paints & coatings, medical, and textile.

Metal biocides are used in end-use industries such as, paints & coatings, medical, textile, pesticides (agriculture), wood preservation, foods & beverages, and others. In 2015, the medical sector accounted for the largest market share among the end-use industries, in terms of value. Whereas, the paints & coatings segment is expected to register the highest CAGR, during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is primarily attributed to the increasing demand for metal biocides in household paints, varnishes, marine antifouling agents, and so on, due to their effectiveness in inhibiting the growth of algae and fungi on applied paint.

Based on type, the metal biocides market is segmented into silver, copper & alloys, zinc, and others. In 2015, the silver-based metal biocide was the largest segment among all types. Moreover, this segment is expected to register the highest CAGR, during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is supplemented by the non-toxic, environment friendly and sustainable nature of silver biocide. Despite the high cost, silver biocide is widely used in the healthcare industry owing to its high thermal stability, effectiveness, unsurpassed safety, and the fact that it is approved by the Environment Protection Agency (EPA).

The Asia-Pacific region, North America, Europe, and rest of the world are the main metal biocides markets considered for the report. The North American region is leading the global metal biocides market, both, in terms of volume and value. The rising demand for metal biocides in this region is mainly driven by the presence of key market players such as, The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Troy Corporation (U.S.), Milliken Chemical Company (U.S.), and Noble Biomaterials Inc. (U.S.). Intense competition among the major players in the market has led to price stabilization in the past few years. The growing demand for metal biocides in the medical and foods & beverages industries in the U.S. is driving the metal biocide market in the region.

Metal Biocides Market

The global metal biocides market is growing at a moderate rate. Stringent regulations for the production and consumption of metal biocides, coupled with the requirement of high capital investments are the key factors restraining market growth. These factors create a huge entry barrier for new entrants in the global metal biocides market, which in turn discourages competition and lowers overall market growth.

Metal biocides are used in many applications such as paints & coatings, medical, textiles, and others.

Paints & Coatings

Paint & coating is the main industry where metal-based biocides have maximum usage. Household paint, varnishes, marine antifouling paint, and industrial paint are some of the important areas where biocide is effective to inhibit  the growth of algae and fungi on applied paint. Biocide is effective in inhibiting the growth of microorganisms. It can be used to address the problems in:

  1. Exterior coatings: Environmental exposure causes development of airborne algae and fungi in exterior applications. In such cases, biocides that are UV stable and less soluble in water are effective for long term stability.
  2. Interior coatings: Mold contamination takes place in internal coating based on humidity of rooms (kitchens, bathrooms). Biocides applied in such cases should have the property of low solubility in water and protection against mold.      

Medical

Utility of silver and copper biocides in medical industry is already a proved fact. Both silver and copper-based biocides are used for coating of medical devices to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for a long period of time.  Moreover, the ongoing researches are finding their use in more number of applications in the same field. Clinical researches have proved that copper and alloys are effective against several viruses, such as influenza A viruses, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and E. Coli O157:H7.

Textiles

Silver-based biocide has commercial usage in the textile industry due to its antimicrobial quality. It is estimated that in North America and Europe, both silver and copper biocides are gaining importance in terms of usage in regular clothing as well as medical textile.

BASF SE (Germany), Clariant AG (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), SANITIZED AG (Switzerland), Lonza Group Ltd (Switzerland), Troy Corporation (U.S.), Milliken Chemical Company (U.S.), SteriTouch Ltd. (U.K.), Noble Biomaterials Inc. (U.S.), and Renaissance Chemicals Ltd (U.K.) are the leading companies, with an excellent foothold in the global market. These companies are expected to account for a large market share in the near future.
